    newtoschool -- what part of south texas are you in? I think there are elementary positions available in Willacy and Cameron counties.

    Okay, those are a little futher south than you.

    It doesn't look like there are any elementary positions available in Port Lavaca/Port O'Connor area either.

    Hey I just spotted openings on the Victoria ISD web site at http://www.visd.com/jobs/index.asp

    Click on "1st, 2nd, 4th & 5th Grade Teachers (4 Positions) - Rowland Elementary"

    There's also a listing for a fifth-grade teacher at Aloe Elementary.

    How long have you been trying?
    Since January.
    How many resumes did you send out?
    Countless. I would say roughly 30+ e-mails and 25+ snail mail. For the ideal positions I would mail a mini port.
    How many interviews or job fairs?
    1 job fair with 7 interviews.
    2 phone interviews (1st round).
    3 interviews (2 were 2nd round (1 of which included a model lesson), 1 was 1st round).
    What general geographic area?
    Indiana
    And of course what grade and/or subject?
    3rd grade!

    newtoschool -- if you are asking me where I am at, I live about three miles from downtown Houston.

    I will be teaching in La Porte (on the coast, just north of Galveston) this fall. Yes, that is a bit of a haul, and I will be passing oil refineries along the way :)

    My family has been making the trek down the coastline to Cameron county at least twice a year, every year for the past 45 years, so I am very familiar with your area. Victoria is a lovely town!

    New teacher!

    How long have you been trying? I graduated in December, so I started looking around in October. I didn't get serious until February.
    How many resumes did you send out? Probably 45-50. Most of them were handed out at job fairs.
    How many interviews or job fairs? 2 job fairs for my district (once in November and once in March) and 2 for nearby districts. 3job interviews and 3 requests for interviews after I landed a job. I actually got 2 job offers, so I got to choose my school :up:
    What general geographic area? An Atlanta suburb
    And of course what grade and/or subject? 7th grade Language Arts

    Good luck to everyone else looking for a job. I know how frustrating it can be!

    Please add me to the list!

    I’ve been looking for about a year. It took awhile to get all of my certification stuff taken care of. I sent out about 30-40 resumes.

    I’ve gone to about 3 job fairs and had around 5 interviews. I’ll be teaching High School Special Ed in East Texas.
